Amusement Park Annual Passes Even Provide Great Value To Families On The Road

At least once every summer we indulge our amusement park affinity and pick a park in close proximity to a campground where we will be staying for a few weeks.

One thing I’ve learned through the years is that annual passes are not just for locals and can be a huge cost savings if you time your trips right. For example, earlier this summer we knew we were going to be staying at Vineyard RV Park in Vacaville, CA for a month and that put us about half an hour from Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.

Instead of purchasing single day tickets at $49 each, we took advantage of Six Flag’s upgrade offer and got a season pass instead for only $10 more! So for an additional $30 (me and the girls are the only amusement park attendees, as Greg prefers to sneak away and pan gold in a nice cool stream instead of sweltering in the heat with us all day) we not only had the option of going to the park as many times during our month’s stay, but we also got coupons for free guests that allowed the girls to invite quite a few of their new friends at the campground to come along with us!

But it gets even better!

We definitely got our money’s worth out of the passes during our stay, but as it turns out, as we make our southerly trek for the winter, we will once again be stopping in the Vallejo, CA area during the month of October. And that means – Halloween Fright Fest here we come!

So right now the girls are counting down the days until we get to visit the park again – this time with goblins and ghosts in full force and it won’t cost us a dime! (Well, we won’t talk about souvenirs and food – but you get my point lol)

Once again, looking beyond a physical residence mentality – we’ve discovered a way to take advantage of the same benefits the locals get while enjoying life on the road!
